Nvidia says that the 304 driver does support the GeForce 6100,
and it was updated to 304.131 in November.
But you might have found a bug - or there could be some other
problem. I don't know the significance of "MCP 410". Possibly
you have a problem with your southbridge (the MCP 410?).
If you are desperate you could try installing the binary from
nVidia's site (usually not worth the effort) or the VESA or even
VGA drivers (extremely basic performance).
It is probably time to forage for a newer discarded motherboard
or video card - depending on how much you value your time.
Sig goes here...
